News Briefs: Peachtree-Pine shelter; Garden Hills building; Evans last meal

The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless will have its day in court after the Georgia Supreme Court said a  jury could decide whether the foreclosure Peachtree-Pine shelter was illegal. According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the city and other parties have been trying for years to get the task force evicted for failing to make payments on the shelter property and for “warehousing” homeless people. The task force has responded with a claim of wrongful foreclosure. Mayor Kasim Reed has vowed to close the shelter property and transform it into a new fire station and police precinct.
